The Verge's New Adventures: All the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Books Coming Out In August
Science Fiction and Fantasy Books You'll Want to Read (Kirkus, August)
Leandra Weal is in trouble.
After obtaining a prophetic spell that provides a glimpse one day into her future, Leandra discovers that she will either murder someone she loves or die herself. Problem is, the potential murder victim could be nearly anyone in her family.
That's a pretty big problem for a woman who has a shark god for a lover, a hostile empress for an aunt, a rogue misspelling wizard for a father, and a mother who--especially when arguing with her daughter--can be a real dragon.
Leandra's quest to unravel the mystery of the murder she will commit becomes more urgent when her chronic disease flares up. As chaos spreads, the Weals must race to uncover the shocking truth about a prophesied demonic invasion, human language, and their own identities-if they all don't kill each other first.
From Blake Charlton comes an exciting stand-alone fantasy in the acclaimed epic fantasy series that began with Spellwright and Spellbound.

Praise for Blake Charlton:
"Read Spellwright for its words, magic, word-magic, and wordplay. Inventive, but in a traditional vein: good vs evil, deathmatch." --Brent Weeks, New York Times bestselling author
"Spellwright is exactly the kind of book that got me into fantasy in the first place...built a world that is as new as it is classic. Blake Charlton is a talent to watch." --Daniel Abraham
"Think words can't hurt you? Sometimes, they can kill. The spells of textual magic of this enthralling take will demonstrate how." --Terry Brooks, New York Times bestselling author, on Spellwright
